Hi guys,
Yes the fires have devastated the community over 187 people have lost their lives so far, we are used to bush fires but this one is straight from Hell. There are huge fire balls being carried by the wind and just exploding and roar on to wipe out another area.

Thanks for the compliment mate, but this thread is made up of a lot of people with the core being Popeye, Santana, E.j and myself. It's not a contest or anything like that, it's just a few good people doing something they are all interested in and sharing it with others.

Eugene awesome post, excellent pictures
Here a very rare video

F-111B Carrier Trials

http://www.patricksaviation.com/videos/hokeyPokey/3899/



The F-111B was to be a fleet air defense (FAD) fighter for the U.S. Navy, fulfilling a long-standing naval requirement for a fighter capable of carrying heavy, long-range missiles to defend carriers and their battle groups from Soviet bombers and fighter-bombers equipped with anti-ship missiles. The Navy had just cancelled the F6D Missileer, a concept for a slow, straight-winged jet with the advanced Hughes AN/AWG-9 pulse-Doppler radar, which could detect low flying targets among ground clutter, and lift eight new AIM-54 Phoenix long range, air-to-air missiles, which could attack multiple aircraft simultaneously at ranges out to 100 miles (160 km). The concept was soon cancelled, but the F-111 offered a platform with the range, payload, and Mach 2 performance of a fighter to intercept targets quickly, but with swing wings and turbofan engines, it could also loiter on station for long periods. The F-111B would carry six Phoenix missiles, but have no gun or other short range armament. General Dynamics, having no experience with carrier-based aviation, partnered with Grumman for this version.

Compared to what I'm use to seeing in my US Navy service she looks like crap. And that's being kind. That flight deck has no 'non-skid" and rusty patches. I can imagine it gets very slick during inclimate weather. Looks real bad. Gotta wonder.. how does the interior of the ship look???

I like the idea of a multihull carrier ... how feasable is it?

If the hull is large enough to contain all the supplies, ammo, fuel, crew berthing, messing, medical etc, etc..It may be ok. But how stable would a hull like that be? A CV deck need be as stable as possible to operate aircraft.

xav
02-16-2009, 05:16 PM
Well, as far as sail boats are concerned, tri or catamaran designs are a lot more stable (and "stay flat") than mono-hull.

THe issue maybe the size of the carriers... the structure linking the two hulls would probably be under too much stress

Hump
02-16-2009, 05:21 PM
I agree that the Kusnetsov looks a bit sad and doesn't hold a feather to the US Carriers but in her day she was a nice looking ship. She definitley wasn't a contender against the CVN's but I just like the look of her stern as she was steaming through the waves. The photos were fairly old as I've had them for quite a while.

Just a side note Netzach and I have solved our differences and agreed to let the last page slide with a fresh start guys. Have a good one all and I will have my usual post a bit later after my second coffee of the day.lol

Great pics! especially the future concept illustrations. it would be interesting to see other countries develop and operate super carriers, however it would be years before they could iron out the kinks. Unlike the U.S. who have been perfecting naval aviation for the better part of a century. It never ceases to amaze me how flight deck operations are performed on American carriers its like a perfectly choreographed ritual, very fluid and precise, with years of practice and training. Very impressive. I've always had a great deal of respect for flight deck crews who never seem to get the credit they deserve. I should have joined the navy LOL!

This is not the USS Lexington (CV-2), she never carried the twin 5"/38 mounts. Lex's 8" turrets had been landed before Coral Sea but she went down before the 5"guns were installed. Only USS Saratoga (CV-3) got the upgrade. This is the Sara.

Any Ideas guys???:)

can you tell why did they kept changing the pennant numbers????

I think they were trying to confuse the U.S. as to how many carriers they actually had I know they did the same thing with their Subs.

tight seas, any one was asking for. I cant guess how the deck was moving to make an easy landingThat sea state you see there is pretty normal. CVNs ride very well and the deck is generally pretty stable. It can get very rough out there at times.

The Atlantic is somewhat rougher than the Pacific. the Pacific & Indian oceans are much smoother than the Atlantic. The Mediterranean is very smooth. So is the Persian Gulf & Red Sea. In fact the Red Sea is like glass. . The sea state in the North Sea and North Atlantic is always brutal. From what I understand so is the South Atlantic.

Nice one Ej, I remember coming out of Suva during a Cyclone, we had to strap Grummans to the flight deck to blow us out from the Wharf and get to sea to ride it out. We had waves breaking HALF WAY down the flight deck - it was one of the scariest days of my life and I loved it.

****, it was a close call between the USS John F. Kennedy (CV-67) and the USS Kitty Hawk (CV-63). Both operated F18 E/F models and had the forward RAM missile launchers. However, the ship above has a distinct cutout on the port edge of the angled deck. That seals the deal. She is the Hawk. The JFK had a smooth forward edge on its angled deck. Also, if you look closely, the plume coming out of the funnel rises vertically before drifting to port. The JFK's funnel was angled out to starboard and the plume would reflect this. Finally, on the Hawk's website there is a pic of an F18 with a red tail much like the one shown about halfway back above.

Hump

Excellent detective work!! mate I am pretty impressed, I was trying to look at the number on the flight deck and it looked like a 7 to me but I'm inclined to go with you on this one mainly because of the FA18 with the red tail feathers. I just hope he wasn't visiting for the day. lol

I just checked in my other Kitty Hawk pictures and you are 100 percent right mate.

Yep so very true. No nation on Earth can do what this thread presents of the United States Navy.

Unequaled, unrivaled SEAPOWER.

I once was a member of a UK based Naval Forum. Those fellows, bless them, had a lot of ***** envy of the USN. In fact they did not want me to post the hi-res photos of the USN..so I just stopped going to that forum.

Hump
02-19-2009, 07:53 PM
I agree mate, and seriously no sucking up required but thank god. We need a universal fleet made up of Australia - England - Canada - America - France and any other countries that can afford to be involved and I'm not talking U.N. I am talking about a fleet with the power to protect all our individual and collective countries without having to "***** foot" around and I don't think it fair that America is having to do this on her own. It must cost a fortune to have these ships cruising the oceans of the world and I think we could all do our bit. Please don't jump on the band wagon guys - this is just my opinion and on a global scale it doesn't mean much. I am not trying to upset anyone I'm just stating facts.

Eugene Schmidt

Talk about sea power - and that brings to mind my personal recollection of living on a carrier in the 60's. Working in engineering - the sounds, the smells, the feel of the ships motion and the throbbing of the turbines and props, not to mention the awsome power of the aircraft and armament and quick response time to any emergency. The ships departments, air power departments and the men who man them, all working as a well oiled, precision unit. And most of them are just kids, 18 to 25 year olds. These are the best kids in the world.

Both my sons served, albeit in the army, one still in and will be a career man. I'm proud of them both.

Thanks mate, I thought it was pretty cool, I wish it was a bit clearer though it would make an excellent "Desktop" picture.

Great pics and video as usual guys. This thread has me thinking how awesome these ships are and how the US Navy really has no equal in the world. We truly rule the worlds oceans. The US Navy has this down to a science. Question: Do you think we will ever see another country operate as powerful a navy as the U.S. in our lifetimes?. Has anyone else wondered why no one else has tried to build a carrier force or any significant naval aviation for that matter?. Just my random musings.

Comes down to two things Firemedic. Money & Manpower, keep an eye on China - Indonesia and India. They all have the Manpower to crew a fleet as large as the U.S. but money is the key. Look at Russia, they almost bankrupted their own country to try to keep up with the U.S. No offense meant to all you Russian guys out there but it's a fact.
I would say if any one country will succeed it will be China, maybe not in my lifetime though.(I hope)

Good morning all, it's a fine and sunny Sunday morning here in Adelaide South Australia with a top temperature of 31 degrees celsius (about 93 F I think) as promised I have a tribute to the CVA 64 USS Constellation a bit further into the post so Let's get going as it's a bit bigger than usual. And I thought it would be nice to see some pictures...lol

I know it's the Crew that makes a ship but after being on a ship for a few months it becomes a home. It takes on a role that gets into your blood and it's always sad to see them discarded after long years of service, so I hope you enjoy these pictures guys. :)

Can anyone assist in a trivia question ?
Why was only one Enterprise class of carrier built compared to ten Nimitz ? Does/did she have flaws or just too expensive ? Some other reason ?

Thankyou

Cornerstone
02-24-2009, 10:26 AM
She was laid down a little while after the constellation, cost was high for the first nuclear powered carrier so she was the only one built out of a planned six, the next nuke carrier to be built was laid down ten years later...

Yep I was kind of sick, trying to recuperate my self from a little flew.
well my question was open for any one who knows about those USN Air Squadrons, specially the VFA-41.
But, then my curiosity was open and I found this at wiki
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VFA-41
almost the full story of the Squadron. I remember then very well thanks for the famous incident at Gulf of Sidra in 1981 when two F-14s from the VFA-41 Squadron shot down two Lybian Su-22 "Fitter" aircraft. Also in that year the "Black Aces" won the Battle Efficiency "E" signifying them as the most efficient squadron in the US Navy Atlantic Fleet.
I am also a proud owner of a VFA-41 "Black Aces" patch

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/b/b6/VFA-41.gif

As for the question in mention the VFA-41 have been deployed in other carriers different than the Nimitz.

Exactly! No elevators. How are those aircraft going to get to the roof?? Plus how is that propulsion system going to work? I see a lot of structural weakness because of the catamaran style hull. And the first arresting wire as someone in another forum pointed out is tooooo close to the round down (stern)

Now.. this Fan Boy dream is much more realistic..But I don't see a need for a ski ramp when you have catapults. The Ski ramp eats up tooooo much valuable deck spce for spotting(parking) aircraft.

Get rid of that ski ramp and you have a nice design.

Hi Popeye, I don't know about the "V" shape of the catapults, it means you can only launch one plane at a time.

I don't know exactly when this picture was taken but its for sure after 2005 since CVN-65 has RAM launcher(s) and the newer domes. CVN-69 is the easiest of the two to distinguish since its the only east coast carrier to have been modernised with the newer mast. Also you may see the naval aviation ensign that is visible under the bridge windows. CVN-69 is the only carrier carrying it in this place.
CVN-71 was harder to distinguish but the arrangement and type of the domes on the island reveal its identity.

I have couple drawings of Ulyanovsk, one quite detailed line drawing and general artists impression. Another is from Wiki and other is from FAS. I used to have couple or few photos somewhere about unfinished hull and it's wrecking, I might find them at some point, but that will happen when I find time to reassemble my old computer (it may take time... lot of it).

Federation Of American Scientists (an anti war civil organization that maintains probably best information resource in web.) page on Ulyanovsk class aka Project no.1143.7. link (http://www.fas.org/man/dod-101/sys/ship/row/rus/1143_7.htm)

Another brief article on Soviet/Russian carrier projects. link (http://128.121.102.226/rcar.html)

Of Soviet carrier projects I would like to find more info on original 1973 started Orel project, no 1153. That is even more obscure than Ulyanovsk. It was planned to 80 000tons in displacement so it would have been almost as big as Nimitz class.

On those fan boy pipedream photoshops... there is only one thing that beats them in stupidity, only sometimes, but still beats them... government authorized artists impressions based on apparently "real" intel.

My next photo post here will be little off topic, but still somewhat related, inspired by carrier killing thread on general discussion. Some pics of Soviet/Russian naval aviation Tu-22M's.
